The 'Yellow Army' has not been performing well so far in the IPL 2020. Fans are surprised to see the three-time champions languishing in the bottom half of the table with just 2 wins from 7 matches.

In these seven matches, it has been evident that the major problems plaguing CSK this season is their batting order. The middle-order has been unstable after Suresh Raina pulled out from IPL 2020. 

Recently, CSK head coach Stephen Fleming opened about the problems that the franchise has been facing this season.

“If we don’t get a good start at the top with our two overseas players, we’re falling into a hole. So we’re looking for positive solutions. What I’d like is a little bit more intensity through the middle overs,” Fleming said in the post-match press conference.

Fleming also demanded more intensity from his “ageing” team’s batsmen. “We’ve got plenty of batting, and while we’re recovering pretty well, we are just ending up with too much to do at the back. So, trying to release the shackles and just allow the hitters towards the end a little bit more freedom,” he added.

Meanwhile, CSK players’ average age is a little over 30, that's why the team is referred to as the ‘Dad’s Army’.

Further when Fleming was asked if it was the most challenging period of his tenure and whether the side had a chance of making the play-offs, he said “it’s getting further away if we keep playing like this.” 

“If you look at a couple of other factors, this one is an ageing team. Also, the conditions...the spinners at this stage are playing a small role but still not playing the substantial role we are used to. We are looking for ways to compete and change the style of play, given we have been so consistent with our selections. We are certainly scrapping...trying to find a way, it is a bit foreign and the results are showing,” Fleming admitted.

Later harping on more intent after the batsmen appeared to perform against RCB bowling. Fleming stated that “The other point is we’ve chased every game and the wickets are getting slower. It’s not easy, once you lose wickets... But I’d love to see more intent. It’s not that you can just keep swinging. There is some challenging bowling but intent is what we’re after."
